Constructed Landscape

Paula McCartney

Learn more about Paula's work.

This week’s assignment comes from artist Paula McCartney, whose work explores the boundaries between the natural and unnatural. Her assignment asks you to reexamine what those terms even mean by constructing an image of the so-called natural world.


1. Gather materials to make a constructed landscape of your choosing
2. Combine natural elements with things that reference natural landscape
3. Take lots of photos, but only upload your favorite one using #theartassignment
4. Fame and glory (your work might be in a future episode)
